Kiana Hayeri grew up in Tehran, where the country’s morality police restricted her public behavior. She left in 2005 when she was 17 and moved to Toronto, where she studied photography at Ryerson University.
Her project’s title, “Your Veil Is A Battleground,” refers not just to the hijab covering — or not covering — their heads in public, which is law under the islamic republic, but also to the hidden nature of their private lives. It goes beyond the restrictions placed on women in public or their private rebellion. Ms. Hayeri also explores how the women choose to present themselves in public.
“It’s a whole world that many Americans are unaware of,” she said. “Nowadays, with all this talk about war, sanctions and nuclear weapons, people tend to forget about ordinary people, the actual people who live in Iran, and they only look at the government.”
“This is the generation that is trying to push the boundaries in every sense.”

Clothing Folds & Hair Tutorial for Aethubryn.
Folds and hair follow the laws of physics (such as gravity) and will shape themselves to follow whatever surface they lie on. However, to add move variety, folds will ‘loop’ on each other, and hair will clump together to form ‘locks’.
What I notice in your drawing is that the hair locks are all the same width. This looks unnatural. There are very few evenly spaced patterns in nature. Its a good way to get a mechanical effect, but it sucks the life from a drawing. Vary the shape, size, and spacing of fold loops and hair locks to get a more natural, lively, look.
